This is a lovely cottage. It was well presented with a cosy living room and well appointed kitchen. The bathroom was great and the bed was really comfy with lovely views of the valley. We were really pleased we had booked it , it made our holiday. It was a few minutes walk from Harlech ..very friendly people and delicious ice cream place. Also close to Portmeiron and the Blaenau Ffestiniog Railway , both well worth a visit. We were also really lucky with the weather- baking hot for a few days ...but then back to rain! Still wouldn't be as green without the rain!
We stayed here out of season for a relaxing week - it was perfect. The cottage is a gem; whilst retaining all its charm it benefits from being fully refurbished and as a fabulous bathroom, modern kitchen, spacious lounge with log burner (keep the air flue open!!), and lovely bedroom with king size bed from which you can see the sea in the distance . Bliss. The bonus was that we were allowed to take out golden retriever, Molly who was welcomed in many local hostelries and caves! Brilliant We loved the area and spent many happy hours walking on the deserted beaches. Portmeirion was beautiful, and the coastal towns a joy to visit. The town of Harlech was a few minutes walk up the lane and we ate in the village three times. All very casual, but a lovely chill down break.
This cottage was everything we hoped for. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, stylish shower room/loo, and a bedroom with the largest and most comfortable bed in the world! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We didn't get a chance to try out the wood-burning stove as the temperature hardly dipped below 20C even at night. The garden rises up the steep hillside behind the cottage - it's on levels accessed by flights of steps - the views get better the high you go, but it's not for the infirm. Ample parking across the road. For those to whom it matters (and it shouldn't really as you're on holiday), mobile signal (on O2 at least) is limited. The selection of Freeview channels in this part of Wales is also restricted but there is always the DVD player as an alternative - or you can go to the pub. Harlech town centre is about a 10 minute walk away and is a delightful place. Do go into the Tourist Information Office. They can suggest lots of things to do and help you make the most of your visit.
wonderful cottage exceeds expectation's and is in a lovely location, the view over the bay and Snowdon range are excellent and the higher you go in the tiered garden the get better they get, the middle garden has a BBQ area and you can enjoy the views while dinning in the sun, Harlech was joy to explore, there was plenty of information on different areas of interest for all to visit, we would highly recommend this cottage and we will be booking it again.
A delightful 1-bed cottage only a few minutes' gentle stroll into Harlech centre. Facilities are excellent and the cottage has clearly had a very recent and sympathetic makeover. The kitchen is as light and airy as the lounge is cosy. The only two very minor drawbacks are the lack of a 2nd door (or maybe just a heavy curtain) at the front door which generates a small cold spot; and the house fronts directly onto the main road into town (but traffic is occasional, not continuous - at this time of year at any rate!). I would definitely stay here again.
We got married on the Monday in Wales and this was a lovely little place to honeymoon . The local people were friendly and the Lion Hotel put on free food and drink for us when we went in after we got married, we felt honoured to be treated like a part of the community. We will be going back next year to celebrate our 1st anniversary. The gardens are quirky and private and the wildlife lovely, the beach is fantastic , in fact Harlech is gorgeous .... One last thing your find it hard to get up in the mornings because the bed is so comfy we slept like babies....
